Stores are an integral part of the supply chain, to say the absolute least. As the point of contact for customers to receive products and services, ensuring optimal operations at each location is crucial for continued success. Yet, with concerns such as delivery times and volume increases can, at times, make achieving peak efficiency a complicated task. Further, with limited store capacities, many retailers find scrap pallets and the question of their disposal to pose a serious and reoccurring issue. Piling up in stockrooms and storage areas, pallet cores, odds, and scrap can easily accumulate into a serious drain on time, labor, and resources, costing large amounts of revenue to manage.
The supply chain is a foundational aspect of any successful business, and pallets are an indispensable aspect of it. As the National Wooden Pallet and Container Association’s motto states, “Pallets move the world.” Nearly every major industry depends on them to move their products, from retail to healthcare to grocery.
Protecting our environment is a matter of dire importance, as the impacts of climate change become more and more visible each year. With storms in the south and fires in the west, companies in all industries across the nation are taking steps to make their operations more environmentally ethical. The pallet industry is no exception to this, with fewer pallets ending their lives in landfills than ever. Yet, for most customers, the supply chain is only one of a myriad of processes that potentially need modifications to meet their sustainability goals.
Following its 2019 merger of Northwest Pallet Services and Prime Woodcraft, Inc., the blended company has rebranded itself as Prime360®. For its leadership team, it was important to establish a singular brand and name that better represents the unified company it is today.
